Fantastic food at reasonable prices

This was the Resteraunt of choice when visiting a friend in Jersey as it comes highly recommended by those who live on the Island. We ordered espetadas (what else!) which were cooked to perfection. Great environment for great food with friends. Cosy and buzzing in equal measure.

Found this place after walking around missing another place 1st which turned out to be fortunate to say the least great at grilled sardines and the salmon florentine and my other half had steak and prawns on a massive skewer which was very good. Easy going good house wines great food overall

Restaurant looks bigger inside and a lot nicer. Taxi driver recommended this to us and we are glad he did. We had a lovely meal, beef and chicken on a large skewers, well worth having done just how we have them in Madeira. Not long after our arrival restaurant got really busy. It is well worth a visit.

We were lucky enough to walk in and get a table for two early on Saturday evening. For once in a Portuguese restaurant we decided not to go for espetada's, and to try some different dishes. The starter of scallops & bacon were excellent and plenty full, been wok fried scallops in garlic butter, finished with diced red peppers &... More

Restaurant feels a little tired and the food is ok. Massive portions and left feeling very full and left some of the food. Main courses were generally good but puddings disappointing and bland.

A local suggested we find this place on the Saturday of our mini break and as we'd never tried Portuguese food before we wanted to give it a go. The place was almost full with a few big parties but they quickly managed to find us a table. After a lot of menu studying I ordered crab Creole and a... More

I have eaten at Manos a number of times now and for a number of different occasions including friends/family birthdays as well as for meals with my boyfriend and it is always delicious. My boyfriend is Portuguese and therefore knows what good Portuguese food is and he agrees that this is definitely up there with the best. I was part... More

A traditional Portuguese meal, the food was of an exceptionally high standard, freshly prepared the traditional way and really tasty, portions were large and served by friendly, efficient and well trained staff. Our wine was served cold and the food hot, just as it should be. Price-wise, really good value for money. The entire experience was well worth the visit.... More
